2016 has been a big year for Cumulus Networks. We welcomed in a new CEO, helped our customers reduce TCO with a new perpetual pricing model, released NCLU, launched the industry’s first routing on the host solution, delivered the first multi-platform, multi-silicon 100G open networking solution, and we had a lot of fun hosting webinars, events and meetups — just to name a few.

To top off an already wonderful year, we were recently awarded one of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work for small and medium size businesses. We are both humbled and flattered to be awarded by our own employees, and we are dedicated to ensuring that Cumulus Networks stays a creative, innovative and fun place to work.

Just as importantly, we are dedicated to ensuring that our customers have the tools they need to build web-scale networks like the world’s largest data center operators. We believe in providing our customers the right technology, the right information and the right support to help them get there.

In 2017, we have a lot of exciting plans to enhance our customers’ web-scale experience. For starters, we’ll soon be launching EVPN for general availability. And we think you’ll be both surprised and thrilled with some of the other releases we have up our sleeve. We hope you’ll stay tuned in to our blog, the community and our events to keep up with what’s happening over here at Cumulus.

In the meantime, we would like to wish you a fantastic holiday season. Enjoy the time with your families, connect with close friends and indulge in some festive food and drink. We know we will be doing the same.

From all of us at Cumulus, thanks for being a part of our family. Happy holidays.



For those of you interested in what life at Cumulus Networks is like, here are a few photos from our most recent celebrations. You’ll notice our CEO, Josh Leslie, and CTO and Co-founder, JR Rivers, helped put the final touches on our office Christmas tree.
